GOP revels in powerlessness
The House Republicans was very proud of being the party of NO yesterday. They decided their leader, Rush Limbaugh, had it right. The US Economy should fail, since Americans had the bad taste to vote Democratic for President, for Congress and for the Senate. Since Republicans are the minority party though, they couldn't actually stop the Stimulus bill or the Nadler amendment. But that didn't stop them from celebrating.
I made sure to call my Congressman and thank him for his vote for the stimulus and the Nadler amendment. I also called my Senators and asked them to support the stimulus and infrastructure spending as it now goes to the Senate.
The video linked above is Colbert being Colbert. He is amazing.
